Online Video Editing Course

We have now made our Video Editing Course available online.

The course is designed for aspiring video editors at a beginner or intermediate level. It is delivered by one of our experienced in house editors who will get you set up with all the essentials to become a competent editor. It is made up of five one-hour sessions and can be delivered on a 1 to 1 basis or in small groups of 2-3 people from the same company or friendship group.

We use Adobe Premiere Pro to teach our students, and the course is currently being developed to work with DaVinci Resolve.

You don’t need to have any previous experience but access to a computer or a laptop is required. We will supply you with a download link and some professional footage that you can work on and practice with throughout the course.

The course is split into the following 5 modules:

An Introduction to Editing and Workflow
The first session will cover the basics and get you familiar with working with the Premiere User Interface. Here you will learn how to import your footage and organise all your clips into bins. We will take you through some best practices and you will learn how to start creating your edits within the Premiere Timeline.

Editing Essentials
Here we will look at different editing techniques. You will learn how to assemble an edit, work with both A & B Roll, identify and use keyboard shortcuts and create a narrative to tell a story.

Audio & Colour Grading
You will learn how to add music, voice over and sound effects to your edit. We will teach you about audio ducking, different audio channels and sourcing appropriate and license free music for your films. The second half of this session will focus on colour grading. You will learn how to accurately use Premiere to solve White Balance issues, create stylistic looks and recolour entire scenes.

Effects and Graphics
The fourth session will work on effects and graphics. You will learn how to adjust Keyframes and apply simple animations, effects and transitions to your edits.

Captions / Subtitling and Exports
In the last session you will learn how to add subtitles, lower thirds and titles to your edit. Finally we will take you through the best export settings so that your video will look great without taking up too much space.

We typically use Skype to deliver the courses, but we can also use Google Hangouts or Zoom if you would prefer. As the courses are delivered online, they can be scheduled at a time that is most convenient for you.

Costs (all prices exc. VAT):
1 person – £225
2 people – £300
3 people – £350
